Jonathan Ames Wears Many Hats
Jonathan Ames wears many hats: writer, boxer, performer, raconteur, and screenwriter.
The hat he wears in his video interview on bigthink.com is a jaunty chapeau; a beanie perched atop Ames’ bearded head. It’s almost jaunty enough to distract from the fascinating responses to questions about Ames career arcs as a boxer, performer, writer, screenwriter and more.
An especially interesting tidbit centers on Ames’ answer to the questions “Is there a particular joy to writing about sex?” and “Do you have any personal stories about Craigslist?” which dovetail together nicely and resonate with Ames’ explorations of sex and loneliness.
The only question I wish they’d have asked: “Where did you find such a jaunty hat?”
